Breaking Down Divisions

The Mix It Up Grants Program, administered by the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, provides $500 grants to youth-directed activist projects that focus on identifying, crossing, and challenging social boundaries in schools and communities. Funded projects must promote collaboration across social boundaries — different youth groups, clubs, or community groups working together. Ideally, the project should be created and implemented by youth; however, various adults and community volunteers should also be invited to participate.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. For more information, please see www.tolerance.org/teens/grants.jsp.
